Female Mantis 2:
“Was he fed on an organic diet? Did he have too much adipose tissue? Or cholesterol?
Sigh. You can’t be too picky these days! ” ;)

Nice. It kind of puts castration anxiety into perspective, doesn’t it?

I wonder if there are lesbian praying mantises? I have a vision of a self-righteous uber-devout mantis (hey! they’re praying mantises, after all) declaring that female praying mantises eating other female praying mantises is unnatural and an aberration in the sight of God.

Lekhni..wow!

And Falstaff, imagine what those self-righteous uber-devout mantis will do with Ludwig and his unnatural thoughts on “lebanese food habits”… shiva shiva.

Though it is interesting that the discussion ended up this way.

To think the Spacebar’s Namaste post got me started on this. Something along the lines of “the divine in you … in me” translated to the religious “praying mantis” being in another mantis’ stomach. well.

Ludwig: Hmmm…interesting defense that. “No, your honor, my client is not a cannibal, she just has a really, really deep throat.”
